Tajikistan to build six small hydro projects

Tajikistan Map

Tajikistan will be home to six new small hydropower plants by the end of the year, according to a release from the country's Ministry of Energy and Industry earlier this week.

The capacities of the new hydroelectric projects will range from 300 kW to 1 MW, the ministry said, with a cumulative output capacity of just over 2 MW.

The projects are being funded by a mixture of domestic and foreign investments, and will be located primarily within Tajikistan's mountainous Gorno-Badakhsha region.

The ministry said Tajikistan is currently home to more than 300 small hydro projects, including the 9.5-MW Varjob plant that was completed in January.

HydroWorld.com also reported in November 2011 that the utility Barki Tojik was seeking consultants for help developing the 3,600-MW Rogun hydropower project.
